Rogue Theater begins its fall season with an amazing script The Dixie Swim Club by Nicholas Hope, Jessie Jones and Jamie Wooten. The all-female cast celebrates the best of women’s relationships. Enduring friendships are among the most important aspects of human existence they sustain when all else fails – marriages, children, careers, investments.
The Dixie Swim Club is a play about the importance of women’s friendships, illustrated by five southern women in four scenes, covering 33 years of their lives. These women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. Free from husbands, kids and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage on North Carolina’s Outer Banks to catch up, laugh and meddle in each other’s lives. The play focuses on four of those weekends. As their lives unfold and the years pass, these women increasingly rely on one another, through advice and raucous repartee, to get through the challenges that life flings at them.
The cast includes Pamela Johnson, Lola DeVillers, Donna Johnson, Jamie Buesing and Lori Wier. Together they are directed by Stuart Champeau, and will perform Sept. 29, Oct. 5-8 and Oct. 13-15. Performances start at 7:30 pm Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Oct. 8 at 1 pm and Oct. 15 at 4 pm. Rogue Theater is located at 340 Jaycee Court in Sturgeon Bay. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students. For reservations or more information, call 920.818.0816 or find Rogue Theater on Facebook.
